Cook the mixture on low heat and boil it while mixing frequently, continue stirring for about 2 minutes then remove from the pan in the heat. Stir 3/4 cup of toasted coconut and vanilla extract. The rest of the cocoa toast is used in topping.

4. Put the filling in the crust and leave it in the fridge until it is firm for about 4 hours.

5. Once the pie is fully chilled, it is ready to top. Spread on the top surface a layer of frozen whipped cream and add toast coconut. The coconut cream pie is ready to satisfy the palates of your taste. Leave in the refrigerator until it is time to show your guests this delicacy.
